With the completion of Forum Lviv approaching, Multi Ukraine announces the shopping center opening date. On August 21st 2015 Forum Lviv will become a true part of Lviv’s local community and welcome its first customers.
The official announcement was made during one of the regular visits of Andriy Sadovyi, the Mayor of Lviv, along with Iryna Kulynych (Head of Economic Policy Department), Iryna Ivanchyna (Head of Galytska District Administration), Ulyana Korzhevych (Acting Head of Foreign Economic Relations and Investments department) to the construction site. Thus, Mr Sadovyi will be the honorary guest to open the shopping center to the public in August.
“It is with great pleasure and honor that we announce the opening date for Forum Lviv. In our communication we always accentuate how we want Forum Lviv to be a true part of the local community. We are thankful to Mr Sadovyi and the representatives of Lviv City Council for being open and supportive of our cooperation. Announcing an opening date four months ahead is a true sign of mutual confidence which clearly is the result of a long-lasting respectful and transparent relation,” comments Gawein Minks, Director Multi Ukraine
“It is important for Lviv that another major investment project, construction of Forum Lviv shopping center, was implemented. Having such a big project opening during hard times in the country is once again a sign that our city is an attractive destination for investors. Besides the shopping center the city also received refurbished sidewalks and roads. We sincerely thank the investors for participating in the landscaping of the territory. I am confident that as the result of cooperation with Multi new jobs for Lviv citizens will be created,” comments Andriy Sadovyi, Mayor of Lviv.
Throughout the years Multi has actively cooperated with the city of Lviv. Examples of this cooperation are the reconstruction of Kulisha street (pedestrian walkways), the incorporation of bicycle paths, reconstruction of all streets adjacent to the project, a complete refurbishment of the roundabout on Dzherelna and renovation of all utilities in the area. The complete park area in front of the shopping center will follow prior to opening.
Forum Lviv construction has entered into its final stages. The final façade materials are being placed. The glass facades are nearly all finished. The interior fit out works with for instance beautiful mosaic floors are already visible and truly impressive. In the upcoming months, the park zone in front of the shopping center will be completely upgraded. Forum Lviv will be the first shopping center in Ukraine to be certified according to BREEAM standards – which is one of the best known and most common methods for assessing the environmental performance of buildings. The project is financed by EBRD and Unicredit, among Lviv’s most important investors. The total value of the project is approximately € 92 million. The total amount of new jobs to be created – over 800. The amount invested in the city infrastructure (streets upgrade, sidewalks, and so on) – over € 2 million.
